What's New in Saratoga
The Kentucky Derby and The Preakness Stakes are in the past; it's time to look ahead toward Opening Day at Saratoga Race Course. To prepare for the upcoming 2016 Saratoga meet, NYRA will begin selling season admission passes at local Stewart's Shops on May 30!

The New York Racing Association, Inc.'s (NYRA) popular online wagering system NYRA Rewards will be replaced with NYRA Bets later this summer. The new advance deposit wagering (ADW) platform will officially launch in time for the start of the 2016 meet at the Saratoga Race Course.

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation recently awarded Skidmore College a substantial grant to support new courses that will explore diversity through artworks at the Tang Teaching Museum. This initiative will strengthen the college's existing focus on identity and race, while solidifying its commitment to diversity, integrative learning, and community engagement.
